Summary

From New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Rachel Van Dyken....

She left.

Two words I can't really get out of my head.

She left us.

Three more words that make it that much worse.

Three being another word I can't seem to wrap my mind around.

Three kids under the age of six, and she left because she missed it. Because her dream had never been to have a family, no her dream had been to marry a rockstar and live the high life.

Moving my recording studio to Seaside Oregon seems like the best idea in the world right now, especially since Seaside Oregon has turned into the place for celebrities to stay and raise families in between touring and producing. It would be lucrative to make the move, but I'm doing it for my kids because they need normal, they deserve normal. And me? Well, I just need a break and help, that too. I need a sitter and fast. Someone who won't flip me off when I ask them to sign an Iron Clad NDA, someone who won't sell our pictures to the press, and most of all? Someone who looks absolutely nothing like my ex-wife.

He's tall.

That was my first instinct when I saw the notorious Trevor Wood, drummer for the rock band Adrenaline, in the local coffee shop. He ordered a tall black coffee which made me smirk, and five minutes later I somehow agreed to interview for a nanny position. I couldn't help it; the smaller one had gum stuck in her hair while the eldest was standing on his feet and asking where babies came from. He looked so pathetic, so damn sexy and pathetic that rather than be star-struck, I took pity. I knew though; I knew the minute I signed that NDA, the minute our fingers brushed and my body became insanely aware of how close he was - I was in dangerous territory, I just didn't know how dangerous until it was too late. Until I fell for the star and realized that no matter how high they are in the sky - they're still human and fall just as hard.

All Stars Fall

Not really sure how this is part of the Big Sky series, but I can see it being a perfect novella for just the Seaside series.

I haven’t read any of the Seaside series by RVD but this book makes me want to. I am guessing we will get the bands HEA’s in that series.

Trevor is really sweet and having a hard time with his kids which he loves to pieces. And then her, the woman who is totally sweet and everything he didn’t know he needed. I loved it. It wasn’t too deep, we had our series moments but it was a great little HEA.

I really enjoyed the narration, both narrators brought something to the characters and I loved that.

Not really Big Sky-only mentioned a few times

This novella is set in Seaside, Oregon and is about Trevor, a divorced drummer with 3 young children, abandoned by their mother, and the kind hearted part time nanny, barista Penelope or Penny. Lots of buildup with attraction and kids and dad with issues. Ok story and narrating but a bit slow. It is fine as an Escape Package offering but not worth a credit.

Sweet

I am new to the Seaside Picture group (but have read the original Seaside books). I really enjoyed Trevor and Penelope— a single dad who is also a rockstar and a woman trying to start over. I do wish I would have gotten more of why Penelope wanted to start over (since I have not read the Big Sky books) but it is a novella. It was a sweet story and I liked that they were older than the original Seaside group (which is more young adults). I also enjoyed everyone from the Seaside and Seaside pictures books made an appearance. Definitely a fun novella and makes me want to go back and read the Seaside Picture books.

not bad

I just wish when they had two narrators that they would do it as a story not third person. you kind of sort of start to get invested and then all the sudden you'll hear Penny said where she said still worth a listen now

Good Story - kept me entertained

This has been a good series and this book did not disappoint. Being a short story, the angst is kept to a very reasonable level. The characters are like family to the readers!

Great read listen


This book from the Kristen Proby Crossover Collection is so good that I have gone and purchased the other books from Rachel Van Dyken seaside pictures series. Trevor and Penny are so great and then bonus Bella, Eric and Malcolm. This read I could not put down it was so good. I rooted for Penny the whole time. I am now going to start reading the other books from this crossover series.

sexy and fast paced!<br />

Rachel Van Dyken is one of my favorite authors! Her writing is versatile. Mafia, mobsters, rock stars- she writes it all!
I have not read the Seaside series yet but can't wait to get started! I had no issue following Trevor and Penny's story. Hot rock star, check. single dad with cute kids, check, crazy ex-wife check.
Trevor was all that and more although at times he could be pretty clueless. I loved Penny's character. so bright, sweet and caring.
All Stars Fall is a perfect book to read while you sit by the pool or at the beach! another enjoyable story by Rachel Van Dyken!
my only teeny tiny disappointment was that I thought it would be a little bit steamer but as a novella he can't have everything. Still a great read!
looking forward to checking out other Big Sky novellas in Kristen Proby's collection! And also looking forward to other Seaside books!

“Sometimes in Falling You Find Your Forever”

I am a fan of the Seaside gang. Man did I loved this book! Trevor and Penelope story was perfect! This book has all the feels to it. Trevor is a rockstar who recently turned single dad. He is attempting to navigate his new status and his career. Penelope is in Seaside looking for a fresh start. While working at a coffee shop she is offered a nanny position for Trevor. The attraction between them is unbelievable. I loved how well Penelope fit so well with the family and Trevor’s Friends. I loved their story. Great writing and I loved all the things it made me feel. Job well done!
